The winter season is the perfect time to try different protective styles. The cold weather is harsh on our hair; so a style that will keep your hair protected during these months can be very beneficial. One of my favorite protective styles are mini twists. Although they are time consuming to install, the benefits of wearing this style will be worth it. Here are four reasons you should try mini twists as your protective style this winter:
1. Take a break from your usual hair maintenance routine
For most naturals, wash days and styling can take some time. Installing a protective style such as mini twists will give you a break from your usual hair maintenance routine. They are easy to maintain and take little to no effort to style. If properly maintained, mini twists can last anywhere from 2 to 6 weeks.
2. Style Variety
Mini twists can be styled in so many different ways. Whether you pin them up, wear them in a ponytail or wear them down, mini twists offer a vast array of styling options. The ease of styling is also a plus. It usually takes me less than 5 minutes to style my hair when wearing mini twists, which leaves plenty of time for other things.
3. Protect your hair from the winter elements
Mini twists can help to limit exposure to the cold weather. Styles that help to keep your hair protected will keep you on track with your healthy hair goals.
4. Being able to wear stylish hats and accessories
If you’re like me, you often have trouble wearing hats and other hair accessories because of the size of your fro. With mini twists, you can easily rock different styles of hats and hair accessories to jazz up your winter wardrobe.
